When Shecker arrives at the camp with his father in a flashback scene the other boys, including Goodenow,are all standing near each other.Which implies Goodenow is already with the guys in their cabin. But in another flashback scene Cotton brings Goodenow into their cabin saying he will be staying with them in the cabin and introduces them to the other guys including Shecker who is already there, but according to the earlier flashback scene should not be.

I think I'm going to like it here. The other cabins, everybody was so normal.

Like so many others, I saw this movie in school. I was in the 7th grade and a "dink" like the Bedwetters. I was also in the closet and wouldn't come out for another 20 years but I was already being called, "fairy" like Goodenow and the others in the Bedwetters' cabin. I connected so well with this movie when I saw it that it will ALWAYS be at the top of my favorites list.
Most favorites aren't usually the best that cinema has to offer but ones that strike a special chord in one's life. It helped that the Carpenters were my favorite music group at the time (still are) and "Lost in Space" had been my favorite TV show as a kid and now there was an older "Will Robinson" in this movie (doing a very good non-Will performance).
I have a very poor VHS copy of this movie recorded from a late-night TV showing back in the late 80's. I am holding on to that copy until (hopefully someday soon) the DVD version is released (and hopefully again) with lots of special features.
I am waiting to show my partner this movie on DVD because I want him to know more about who I was (and am) by seeing probably the most important movie of my adolescence.
Re: Actors' real ages. Who cares, adults have been playing teens in movies and TV since the beginning of cinema and still do. If they can pull it off, who cares.
LET'S PULL TOGETHER AS FANS TO GET THIS MOVIE FINALLY RELEASED ON DVD!
